Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On January 4, 2023, Camber Energy, Inc. (the “Company”, “we”, “our” and “us”) entered into a non-binding letter of intent (the “LOI”) to acquire (the “Acquisition”) all of the membership interests in Southeast Renewables LLC and its subsidiaries (collectively, “Southeast”). The Acquisition would be governed by the terms of a definitive agreement to be negotiated between the Company and the equity owners of Southeast (the “Sellers”).
The purchase price (“Purchase Price”) for the membership interests in Southeast is anticipated to be (i) the fair market value of Southeast’s assets (as determined by an independent appraiser) minus (ii) Southeast’s liabilities. The Purchase Price is anticipated to be payable via the issuance to the Sellers of a secured convertible promissory note (the “Promissory Note”) in a principal amount equal to the Purchase Price. The Promissory Note would have a first-ranking security interest against the membership interests of Southeast, and the principal amount would be convertible into the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”), once certain milestones are achieved, at a fixed conversion price equal to the volume weighted average price of the Common Stock during the period commencing ten business days prior to the closing date of the transaction (the “Closing Date”) and ending ten business days following the Closing Date. All conversions of the Promissory Note would be subject to a 9.99% beneficial ownership limitation and the Company would agree to file a resale registration statement with respect to the underlying shares of Common Stock within 60 days of the Closing Date.
In addition to customary closing conditions, the definitive agreement would contain the following closing conditions, which would be required to be satisfied within a certain time period following execution of a definitive agreement: (1) confirmation from the Company’s senior secured lender that the Company’s is not in default under any existing promissory notes or security agreements, and that the senior secured lender will subordinate its security interest against the assets of the Company to the Sellers’ security interest against the membership interests of Southeast until the obligations under the Promissory Note are satisfied; (2) confirmation from the Company’s warrant holders that this transaction will not trigger any price adjustments under applicable warrant agreements; and (3) an acknowledgement from the holder of the Company’s shares of Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series C Preferred Stock”) that: (a) the number of shares of Common Stock associated with previous conversions of Series C Preferred Stock is no more than 1,336,143 as of January 4, 2023; (b) the number of underlying shares of Common Stock associated with such shareholder’s remaining 270 shares of Series C Preferred Stock will not exceed 1,903,916 or such other amount as agreed to in writing by the holder, Southeast and the Company; and (c) the holder will approve any registration statement filed by the Company with respect to the underlying securities associated with the Promissory Note or any securities issued by the Company to satisfy its obligations under the Promissory Note.
The LOI contains non-binding obligations of the parties, and the actual terms of the Acquisitions are still to be negotiated between the parties and set forth in a definitive agreement. There are no assurances that we will be successful in negotiating an acceptable definitive agreement, when or whether a definitive agreement will be reached between the parties, or that the Acquisition will be consummated. Even if a definitive agreement is executed, the terms of the Acquisition may change materially from the terms set forth in the LOI. There are no assurances when or if closing of the Acquisition will occur, even if the parties successfully negotiate and sign a definitive agreement. Either party may terminate the LOI if a definitive agreement is not entered into on or before February 15, 2023.
